You may want to get your 313A before you size an a/c for a 36,000 sq ft home.

For a 3600 sq ft home a 4ton air conditioner is probably the best fit.

Normal house = 850 sq ft per ton.  3600 / 850 = 4.2ton

Energy Star house = 950 sq ft per ton.  3600 / 950 = 3.8ton

I would look at the Aprilaire 600 for homes up to 4000 sq ft.
